There are many things that worked together to make this property the perfect vacation rental for our family.
First, the owners are a pleasure to work with and they are available for any questions you may have. Next, the location of the home is ideal. Lake Wallenpaupack is huge and there is a lot of boat traffic on the lake. However, this home is located in a cove that is not entered by most of the lake traffic. Although, it is a cove, it is large enough to be a lake unto itself and it is quite beautiful. The cove is quiet enough for safe kayaking.
If you have a motorboat, the Ledgeland Recreational Area has a boat launch that provides stress free boat launching for $8 and it is only about 10 minutes from the house by car, and 5 by boat at a slow speed. The dock has an area to safely secure your boat.
The dock is large enough to have many sunbathers on it at one time. For the fisher persons in your group, there are some big fish right off the end of the dock. We don't fish, but we saw them jumping.
The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors are very nice. The front yard has a campfire area complete with chairs for your comfort. The owners have supplied just about anything you may need for your recreation including bikes, horseshoes, and a dartboard.
There are a ton of games and DVD's at your disposal and the porch is a great place to hang out and play Trivia Pursuit and any other game that you enjoy. The home is round and the energy flows nicely. The weather at this time was PERFECT for sleeping and everyone got some great shut eye time.
The town of Hamlin is about 15 minutes away and is very easy to get to. There are lots of great roads for adventure rides. We highly recommend this home for your family vacation. The home sleeps 8 persons comfortably.
